41 Years to Go?

Screen shot 2014-01-22 at 8.46.54 AMI wonder if 41 years from now, as I venture into old age, if today will mark the 82nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade — the supreme court decision legalizing abortion through all nine months of a woman’s pregnancy in the United States.

I wonder if the many marches will continue in 2055. Will hope be lost after 50 or 70 years of legalized abortion?

remain calm all is wellWhy is it that highs are so high and lows so low? It’s as if we constantly wait to grasp on to something exciting or devastating in life. Always searching for the next new thing.

In other words, when life is flatline it’s often not enough.

flatlineI work in a pregnancy resource center that helps women in crisis pregnancy. One thing the center director often notes is that the beautiful women coming in the door have a difficult time living with everything being calm and okay.

It’s as if people crave or even create a storm around themselves, especially us girls.

Twerk That

imageLadies, please take a minute to watch the video if nothing else.

Many of us have gotten a laugh or two our of the ridiculous twerking videos gone wrong.

While some of the videos are admittedly funny, twerking is quite the thing for girls to do whether on the dance floor or on YouTube for all eyes to see. I know some people may find this video provocative, but I think the provocative topics itself can be addressed with the the appropriate bluntness.

This video poses due consideration for all who find themselves tempted or otherwise accustomed to eye twerking surroundings . . .

Life or Death: Downton Abbey Season Four

r-DOWNTON-ABBEY-SEASON-4-PREMIERE-DATE-large570Downton Abbey **Spoiler Alert**

I have to say — I am obsessed with Downton Abbey. From Mary to Thomas this show has my full attention. I dreaded missing the last episode of season three last year while travelling in Europe. Upon finishing the third season I was devastated by the death of Matthew.

Downton Abbey Mary and MatthewFinally, Downton Abbey is back! No matter how hard I tried to get my hands on this season early I had to wait till the US premiere this past Sunday. Ladies, there is something about this show that leaves us aching for more. Sunday couldn’t have come soon enough.

Last night I was talking about how much Downton Abbey has taught me. It constantly has my wheels turning with the many responsibilities and challenges facing each character. After six months of grieving the loss of Matthew, Mary is told by her grandmother she must choose between life and death.

Christmas Poinsettias Prophets Going to Planned Parenthood

christmas-poinsettias-flowers-766011Planned Parenthood is once again raking in the money from everyday people, even during the Christmas season. The festive poinsettia plants that are used to decorate churches and homes over the Christmas season are helping to fund Planned Parenthood.

Paul Ecke Ranch, the world's largest distributor of poinsettias, is a large benefactor of Planned Parenthood. For years Paul Ecke's family has been recognized as one of the largest abortion supporters in San Diego.

This Christmas season please purchase your poinsettia plants with caution this year, by checking if the poinsettia came from Ecke's Ranch.  It may be a small thing to you but the contribution to our nations largest abortion and contraceptive provider is a big deal.

Advent(ure) Into Christmas

Jesus is comingI don’t know about you, but my favorite time of the year is Christmas. I always say I can smell it in the air. What can I smell? Joy, love, and sharing.

This weekend I went on an adventure — a weekend camping retreat in the desert. Two priests and one sister from the Community of Saint John put on the retreat through their Marian Faith Network.  The retreat was an advent retreat to help us prepare for Christ’s coming. The theme was meeting Mary in the desert.

One of my favorite things about the retreat was how everyone shared a common experience of hiking, camping, and freezing together. Waking early each morning for an hours of silent prayer drew us into adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and prepared us for community with each other.

Speak Your Faith

People have contacted me because they struggle with standing on their own two feet with their faith when it comes to living what is preached at Church.
Q. What do I do when everything around me stands for a lack of religion and respect for others? I feel silenced at school and all around me?
speakThis is a really tough question. My first response is that you need to learn to be okay with people disagreeing with you. With the utmost respect you can still talk with people who disagree with you. Be okay with disagreement or even failure. Never be afraid to speak the truth. . .
I want to share a story with you from a couple years ago when I was going to a secular community college and taking a speech class.

Join A ProLife Christmas Carol


A ProLife Christmas CarolSing hymns of Christmas at a local abortion clinic this holiday season. It’s not too late to host A Pro-Life Christmas Carol event in your home town. Each year while the world around us celebrates the many joys of the holiday season with Christmas music, parties, movies, decorations, and delicious treats, there are women who are faced with the option of choosing an abortion and end up sitting in an abortion clinic alone. 
A Pro Life Christmas Carol’s events take the holiday cheer and shares the coming of Christ with those who are sitting inside the abortion clinic.
caroling-2With beautiful carols of the Child Jesus and Christmas season you can bring hope to women sitting inside of the abortion clinic. Collect the baby’s “firsts”, whether it be diapers, bottles, binkies, booties, etc and create a gift basket to present to women entering the abortion clinic. For women this basket is more than just the items inside, the basket is filled with the hope that someone cares and will support them through their pregnancy.
Timmerie counseling a woman -Christmas CarolingIn my experiences of presenting these baskets filled with items, women are surprised by the gesture and usually open themselves to discussion about their pregnancy and abortion decision.

 Women need love and support during their pregnancies, and even more so in the case of women experiencing a crisis pregnancy. Consider Caroling to save a life this holiday season.

Visit AProLifeChristmasCarol.com to join an event near you or for a step by step guide on how to host your own event, and to find resources for bulletin inserts, invitations, and song books.
